Exhibit - Multimedia
Designers use tools for learning the art of design, for teaching, and for communicating ideas in the studio, the office, the field, and on the site.
People often see the results of design: the buildings and landscapes that inform our everyday world. Rarely do we get to see the tools that make the design of this world possible. This exhibition features tangible items that help a designer carry out the day-to-day tasks of becoming and then practicing as an architect, landscape architect, or planner. It presents ways in which objects were used for learning and teaching design, from shade and shape to perspective and shadow. It shows methods of drafting, presenting ideas, and conducting field work.
The exhibit also provides a detailed glimpse into the practice of a father-daughter architecture office of the early 20th century, in order to see the application of these tools.
Open during operating hours of the Environmental Design Library.
